Compassionate Dental Care in Richardson, TX

Preventative Dentistry from Our Dallas County Dentists

How Often Should You Visit The Dentist?

It is highly recommended that patients get dental checkups, including professional cleanings and examinations, every six months to maintain good oral care and a healthy smile. Richardson Dentistry is eager to help you take better care of your mouth.

Keeping on top of your regular dental appointments can help to prevent problems like tooth decay and gum disease, or at least limit the damage that they can cause. Early treatment for these conditions can stop them from progressing into more advanced stages that may require a more invasive treatment.

Gum Disease

The earliest stage of gum disease, known as gingivitis, generally responds to a thorough cleaning by a dental hygienist. However, more advanced forms, like periodontitis may require a surgical intervention to address the problem.

Recent research has suggested a relationship between gum disease and systemic issues like heart disease and diabetes. Keeping your mouth healthy is an important part of keeping your entire body healthy.

We recommend that you see our Richardson dentists when you notice:

  • A change in your bite
  • Loose or separating teeth
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Gums that bleed during brushing or flossing
  • Pus pockets between your teeth and gums
  • Tender, swollen, or red gums

The consequences of oral health issues can be significant and life-changing, but you can trust our Dallas County dentists to help you overcome these problems so you can achieve proper oral health. We promise to provide you with a comfortable, relaxing experience, a top-notch staff, and a warm atmosphere to help us deliver the best dental care possible.

The Importance of Oral Health

Did you know that dental problems can even give you a headache? Patients with bruxism (a condition in which one unconsciously grinds or clenches his or her teeth) are more susceptible to severe headaches, as are those with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Our office offers treatment options tailored to reduce these symptoms.

You deserve an experienced, knowledgeable dentist to manage your dental care so you can minimize your risk of negative outcomes from dental problems. Richardson Dentistry provides a range of services, including general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, and we can serve as your dental home. If you ever require some type of specialty care, we can make referrals as needed. We can also make recommendations for your home oral hygiene routine to ensure that you are doing everything necessary to protect your oral health in between visits to our office.

If you have gotten out of the habit of visiting the dentist every six months, give us a call or contact us online! Our team can help you get back on track.
